WordPress.com, Here I Come

I had almost forgotten having entered my e-mail address on wordpress.com for an invite. Today, right out of a far away galaxy, an invite popped in my inbox. And now I’m wondering: “What will I use it for?” There are many, many domains of interest I could want to make a blog about, yet I remain so undecided right now. It’s like a big birthday gift that I don’t dare use yet, in fear of spoiling it.In any case, I’m giving myself a few days to think about it more and decide what I’ll be blogging about there, if only to test it and see by myself, not only through reviews made by other people. I’m already a big WordPress fan, after all; even though I’m used to having total control over my blogs, this still seems like a nifty opportunity for anyone who’d want to give a try at blogging without having to deal with a much more basic system.So far, I’ve had a look at the interface, and it seems to me more pleasant to use than the old WordPress dashboard, with an integrated WYSIWYG editor (what we’ll be getting too for WP 1.6?). Far from perfect, but already lss ugly. I know, it may seem shallow, but I like having a nice layout under the eyes when I spend half a hour writing and translating a post. I’m only human, after all, and my eyes can do with the relief.Y Tags: |

    Decisions, decisions. I’m in the same boat, having many interests. The new interface is similar, with a few more bells and whistles.

    Yes… and I still haven’t decided what to blog about there! *lol*I still think I’m too used to having my own server, domain name and full control on the blog, so I don’t dare to do anything… I don’t know, “definitive” with it, I guess.

    I’m with you on the control thing. I’ll have to check out how to customize my blog and if I’ll be able to upload pics.

    I think pictures can be uploaded, but only up to 26 Mb or so, which really isn’t that much for someone who wants to post lots of them. it may change later on, though.
